    HARE'S DEATH POOL 2024

    Do you know who else was a hit? Simon Cowell, Adam Lewis , Francoise Hardy, Tony Lo Bianco, Dario G (Paul Spencer) and Anouk Aimee. That's why they were all in the last update. So was Steele Hall, apparently. Only somebody forgot to mention it.

    I gave you a Thanks, although the 9 day gap made me have to think about it for a bit! I'll add the points in the next update.

    Thanks for running this again. I might as well be the first pain-in-the-ass to question a category. Simpsons Voice Actors - are we talking the original English speaking show, or are you allowing people who dubbed it into other languages?

    HARE'S DEATH POOL 2024

    It would appear that there have been some stirrings at the top, and at my age you cannot afford to ignore stirrings for too long!. A mini flurry of deaths, with some big name picks and some important hits, so probably time for an update. I am tempted to wait a bit and see what the story is with Noam Chomsky, but he could do a Jimmy and see the year out, so I will go for it now. Here is who I have: 9th June: Simon Cowell (not that one) 11th June: Adam Lewis 11th June: Francoise Hardy 11th June Tony Lo Bianco 17th June Dario G (Paul Spencer) 18th June Anouk Aimee 18th June: Willy Mays That small selection has yielded a huge upheaval at the top of the leaderboard. Two players managed a Cowell/Hardy/Dario triple, with a Dario joker hit to boot. Top of the pile is now @Funeralopolis, who becomes the first player across the 1000 point threshold. They are closely followed by @BuffaloPhilin second. @gcreptilebriefly took the lead with Cowell (not that one) before relinquishing it 8 days later - they now stalk the leader in 3rd, with @Hellvery closely behind in 4th. @John Key's lead from the previous update only lasted 6 days and in no time at all they have dropped down to 7th. Top 10 is as follows. Full leaderboard on page 1 Funeralopolis (1018 points) 8 hits [Dario G*, Dave Myers, Derek Draper, Francoise Hardy, Frank Field, Jonnie Irwin, Rob Burrow, Simon Cowell] Buffalo Phil (955 points) 7 hits [Dario G*, Francoise Hardy, Frank Field, Iris Apfel, Jonnie Irwin, Juan Vincent Perez, Simon Cowell] Gcreptile (797 points) 10 hits [Corey Williams, Frank Field, Franz Beckenbauer, Jason Smith, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Paul Vachon, Simon Cowell, Thomas Stafford, Zhang Lixiong] Hell (794 points) 9 hits [Charlie Bird, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Glynis Johns, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Rob Burrow, Simon Cowell, William Russell] Toast (783 points) 8 hits [Anouk Aimee, Dave Myers*, Francoise Hardy, Frank Field, Glynis Johns, Jonnie Irwin, Rob Burrow, Toby Keith] GrimUpNorth (778 points) 9 hits [Dario G, Dave Myers, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Jason Smith, Jonnie Irwin*, Rob Burrow, Simon Cowell, Toby Keith] John Key (773 points) 8 hits [Anastasia Zavorotnyuk, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Joe Shannon, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Rob Burrow, William Russell] Arghton (720 points) 9 hits [Abdul Taib Mahmud, Beverly Lahaye, Jaako Valtanen, Ma Shitu, Paul Vachon, Solihin GP, Swami Smaranananda, Tin Oo, Zhang Lixiong] MariNisia (681 points) 7 hits [Alice Munro, Glynis Johns, Gudrun Ure, Jack Burke Jr., Thomas Stafford, Tony Lo Bianco, William Russell] Etushispushingupdaisies (669 points) 8 hits [Derek Draper*, Francoise Hardy, Frank Field, Franz Beckenbauer, Jonnie Irwin, Rob Burrow, Simon Cowell, Toby Keith]

    HARE'S DEATH POOL 2024

    The Hare's Pool would like to apologise to the families of the following people, the deaths of whom it has precipitated by posting an update to the scores earlier this week. It would also like to apologise in advance to the families of whichever poor bugger carks it prematurely on account of this one! 2nd June: Jeanette Charles 2nd June: Janis Paige 3rd June: William Russell 4th June: Parnelli Jones The main reason for the premature update is that we have a new leader. William Russell was a popular pick (1 pick short of making the "Most Popular Picks" team), but the only one of the leaders who had him was @John Key who hits the front as we head towards the halfway stage. @Hellnow lies just outside the podium places in 4th, while @MariNisiais well positioned in 6th. Only one player had 2 hits in this update - a certain @Death Impendswho continues to slowly stalk the leaders. Don't say you were not warned! Top 6 is as follows, full scoreboard is on Page 1. John Key (773 points) 8 hits [Anastasia Zavorotnyuk, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Joe Shannon, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Rob Burrow, William Russell] Arghton (720 points) 9 hits [Abdul Taib Mahmud, Beverly Lahaye, Jaako Valtanen, Ma Shitu, Paul Vachon, Solihin GP, Swami Smaranananda, Tin Oo, Zhang Lixiong] Gcreptile (637 points) 9 hits [Corey Williams, Frank Field, Franz Beckenbauer, Jason Smith, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Paul Vachon, Thomas Stafford, Zhang Lixiong] Hell (634 points) 8 hits [Charlie Bird, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Glynis Johns, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Rob Burrow, William Russell] Captain Chorizo (529 points) 7 hits [Glynis Johns, Jaime De Arminan, Lynne Reid Banks, Paul Vachon, Philip De Gaulle, Rob Burrow, Roland Bertin] MariNisia (519 points) 6 hits [Alice Munro, Glynis Johns, Gudrun Ure, Jack Burke Jr., Thomas Stafford, William Russell]

    General Election 2024?

    Good on him - that's exactly what he needs to do to get elected. I understand why Starmer is a disappointment to staunch socialists like yourself. But the reality is that he is mostly doing the right things. At this point, all he has to do to get elected is a. Not be the Tories b. Not say or do anything that will frighten the middle class voters who decide elections. You may well prefer a more left-wing Corbyn type leader. But the British public don't, and any time they have been offered that in the past, they have completely rejected it. So if Starmer has any sense (and it seems like he does), then he will play it bland, and give the Conservatives nothing to attack him with. That will be enough to romp home with a large majority. It might not be enough to get him re-elected, but that's a problem for another day

    HARE'S DEATH POOL 2024

    It's the start of a new month, so what better time to take stock of who has croaked it over the past few weeks. One person who has definitely gone to meet her maker, but without much fanfare is Canadian centenarian educator Isabella Dryden. The only obit I can see is from Gilbert nursing home, and we all know that that doesn't cut the mustard around here. @BabyBluecan now scour the internet for any further mentions of her passing in order to claim the points on offer. They can be joined in that endeavour by @Salmon Mousse who is still looking for anyone who has noticed Bobby Hehir's death other than his family. The following are definite bona fide hits for their pickers. If I have missed any obscure deaths, please let me know. In any case, I will likely pick up the stragglers when I google all of the names at the half way point at the end of the month. I can hardly wait - another day of my life spent googling obscure Russian scientists. May 13th: Alice Munro May 14th: Gudrun Ure May 16th: Dabney Coleman May 17th: Bud Anderson May 25th: Richard. M Sherman May 29th: Anastasia Zavorotnyuk June 1st: Ruth MAria Kubitschek June 1st: Tin Oo June 2nd: Rob Burrow Tin Oo's unlikely passing means that the ding-dong battle between @arghton and @gcreptile swings back Arghtons way as they regain top spot. A Zavorotnyuk/Burrow double brings @John Keyup into third place, and they also have the unusual distinction of having a hit in every month so far. Alice Munro seemed an unlikely Joker hit for both @GuyFromFutureand @JoeMoneypenny, until I remembered that they were two of the lazy feckers who didn't submit a Joker, and so were assigned the first name on their list. Unsurprisingly, Rob Burrow was a popular selection - the 21 picks making him the 6th most popular pick of the year, and making a lot of Bank Holiday work for your host. Especially when he incorrectly put the date of death into the spreadsheet 21 times as June 1st, and then had to back and change it 21 times. Down at the bottom, 2 players have hauled themselves up off the bench, done a few stretches, and wandered out onto the track. @Yvonnegot their first every hit in this pool with Dabney Coleman, and so loved the experience that she followed it up the next day with Bud Anderson. And ominously for all other players, the deadpooling beast that is @Death Impendshas finally stirred into action with a Gudrun Ure hit. Watch your back everyone! Here is the top 10. As always, the full scoreboard is on page 1. Arghton (720 points) 9 hits [Abdul Taib Mahmud, Beverly Lahaye, Jaako Valtanen, Ma Shitu, Paul Vachon, Solihin GP, Swami Smaranananda, Tin Oo, Zhang Lixiong] Gcreptile (637 points) 9 hits [Corey Williams, Frank Field, Franz Beckenbauer, Jason Smith, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Paul Vachon, Thomas Stafford, Zhang Lixiong] John Key (619 points) 7 hits [Anastasia Zavorotnyuk, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Joe Shannon, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Rob Burrow] Captain Chorizo (529 points) 7 hits [Glynis Johns, Jaime De Arminan, Lynne Reid Banks, Paul Vachon, Philip De Gaulle, Rob Burrow, Roland Bertin] Hell (480 points) 7 hits [Charlie Bird, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Glynis Johns, Jonnie Irwin, Josip Manolic, Rob Burrow] Nantonian (468 points) 7 hits [Derek Draper, Frank Field, Jack Burke Jr., Mario Zagallo, Petyer Oosterhuis, Rob Burrow, Stan Bowles] Toast (452 points) 6 hits [Dave Myers*, Frank Field, Glynis Johns, Jonnie Irwin, Rob Burrow, Toby Keith] GrimUpNorth (450 points) 7 hits [Dave Myers, Derek Draper, Frank Field, Jason Smith, Jonnie Irwin*, Rob Burrow, Toby Keith] Drol (426 points) 8 hits [Frank Field, Jonnie Irwin, Ma Shitu, Mario Zagallo, Manohar Joshi, Toby Keith, Yuri Solomin, Zhang Lixiong] The RadGuy (404 points) 7 hits [Brian Barczyk, Charlie Bird, Franz Beckenbauer, Joe Shannon, Jonnie Irwin*, Rob Burrow, Toby Keith]

    That's a fair point. I promise not to run over any gay people with my lawnmower for the entire month of June. But be warned - come July 1st, its open season!!

    Wow! I feel like a boxer who psyched himself up for the big fight, only to get knocked out with the first punch. Congratulations @drol

    At this point, I am absolutely convinced that you are just trolling. In which case, I tip my hat to you. Nice work.

    I gave Sarmiento and Andrade a skip as well - just not convinced that they are actually dying. What's the news on Lord Henry? I didn't see anything to suggest he is on his way out in the immediate future , but I'm not on any social media, so I presume something ominous has been posted?

    HARE'S DEATH POOL 2024

    Close, but no cigar. That is almost certainly an obituary submitted by his family. That falls foul of rule 3.3: "Paid for obituary sites are not specialist websites and will be not accepted as proof of death, as unscrupulous (and frankly desperate) players could pay for an obituary. The same applies to death notice sections of otherwise acceptable sources."
